“COPD Game & Fun day” organised by TopSupport

On 13th April TopSupport organised the “COPD Game & Fun day” for lung patients and their partners.


On 13th April TopSupport organised the “COPD Game & Fun day” for lung patients and their partners. Patients from TopSupport and St. Anna Hospital in Eindhoven were invited to spend an informative and exciting day at TopSupport. The sunny day started with a shared warming-up by learning a dance to a popular song. Later participants were invited to do several (physical) activities in smaller groups: a walking tour through the park, playing old Dutch games, and doing some exercises as part of the COPD exercise programme. Part of the programme was also the introduction of remote exercises for COPD patients as they are currently piloted in INDEPENDENT. The session attracted a lot of interest and patients were very curious about the remote exercises. In between the different group activities there were some interesting presentations about lung diseases and sports done by the pulmonologist and the sports doctor from the Eindhoven soccer team PSV. It was a memorable day with happy faces. Due to the very positive feedback received from patients the COPD game & fun day will take place every year from now on!
